Relevant 1: Pakistan needs 176 runs to win the first Test after New Zealand were dismissed for 249 in their second innings on the third day in Abu Dhabi today.  Medium pacer Hasan Ali took his maiden five-wicket haul with 5-45 while leg-spinner Yasir Shah finished with 5-110 – his 14th five-wicket haul in an innings – as New Zealand lost their last six wickets for 29 runs. BJ Watling (59) and Henry Nicholls (55) added 112 for the fifth wicket. New Zealand made 153 in their first innings to which Pakistan replied with 227 all out. The second Test will be in Dubai (24th to 28th November) and third in Abu Dhabi (3rd to 7th December).

Medium pacer Hasan Ali registered his first five-wicket haul with 5-45 while leg-spinner Yasir Shah finished with 5-110– his 14th five-wicket in innings feat — as New Zealand lost their last six wickets for just 29 runs.
